Who said being “friends” is easy?
Especially when you’ve already taken me to a place of ecstasy
Like they say “you love who you love”
Easier said when you’re not looking at me from above

Funny thing is that when I tried to keep it on the friend tip before
I think you really loved me from behind a clear, glass door
Immaturity kept me from allowing you in
Found comfort in guarding my heart with you as a friend

Not an inkling that I’d ever feel as strong as I do
Not comfortable enough to let my sensitive heart beam through

Lust at first but does that really change?
Especially when you playfully nibble my lips
sheer restraint keeps me from moaning your name

We’re like the girl and boy on a seesaw
Each patiently taking the lead
How high can you take me...?
No, how high can you take me...?
You want me to scream but I’m taking my time
Taking time to see if you really know how to take me high and ease me down slow
Emotions all over the place being tossed to and fro

I wasn’t expecting to be this much in “like” with you
Spending too much time trying to figure out what to do
Easily lost in private thoughts of deeper friendship, affection and growth
What I mean to you is what I’d like to know the most

Desperately trying to take things day by day
Knowing that it makes perfect sense to wait
Not having you...all of you...is something I’m starting to hate

Just being “friends” is harder than I thought
Wanting to keep it pure but at the same time I’ve already been caught

Caught up in the comfort of knowing you and intoxicated by your sensuality
You probably don’t know that I’m caught up...and I just want us to...be

I've been thru this... when the timing and the emotions and the emotional timing is all outta whack. We feel what we when we feel it & sometimes that feeling isn't felt by that one we feel when we most want them to feel it. Then when they are ready to embrace that feeling, we're off feeling someone new, hoping what we feel is intensely felt by two.

Oldie but goodie, indeed.
